Dual Extrusion with 2015 XEED

Hello, I just received my XEED and I am having lots of trouble figuring out how to print with the dual extruder with repetier. From my understanding, you have to have two separate stl files aligned to the origin in your cad software, then designate an extruder to each file. Seems easy enough, but i'm having trouble figuring it out within the repetier software. Would someone be able to walk me through this process, please? Thank you, Michael

  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
